Rising Above Cultural Expectations
Im flexible, transparent and relatable most times.
I enjoy knowing that i've created a safe space for my clients to learn, grow and accept their lived experiences. I grew up in the bay area during a rough time where there were limited resources and accessibility to such services. I believe my work in probation and family support services prepared me for working with individuals as ive learned about family systems and generational trauma that often shape our world views and predict our futures.
